Cab Surgery

I stopped in to the truck shop today. I was pretty well prepared to see the roof of my B-67 cab cut apart,

having gotten a phone message from my welder/body man the other day.

But - what I found was my old cab with no roof at all, no cab back panel and no windshield posts!

Holy smokes - the shock set in big time.

Even though I got a really good donor cab roof and concave back panel from Kevin All. And I've known this had to happen.

I took some pictures for posting ASAP.

Anyway, after my heart rate went back down a little, I looked it all over and thought about it.

This was the right thing to do, if I wanted to correct the old jacknife damage and get rid of the rusty roof corner and

back window opening. All of the cuts are at the factory seams, and should not show at all when we're done.

The cuts are all done with Zip-wheels so they are real neat and straight. And the welder's work is excellent.

It sure does look pretty serious when you look at it from behind with no back or roof. Just the doors, cowl and

floorboards all bolted down to the rolling cart. By far the most serious body surgery I've ever been through on

one of my projects. And I'm sure the end result will be fine. (I hope)

I'm just way too old for this kind of excitement!

sounds like some major surgery. Maybe he thought you wanted the factory a/c option?? Sounds like she's coming along nicely though. Good luch, JOE

Too old, too much excitement? Nonsense, dirt is old, rocks are old, trees get old sometimes. Someday I might get old, but I refuse to grow up. I WILL NOT GROW UP. I like 16 just fine thank you. James

I didn't say grown up - I just said old!

I'm a long way from grown up.
